Redundant? Retired? Think Again!! Generation Cherry Book Review

If you have been made redundant here is a helpful book for you!!

Generation Cherry Book Review

Generation Cherry is a cracking book for the 50+ generation. Being an avid reader and Author of self-help, how-to and Personal And professional development books, I can see how much time, effort, knowledge and skill, the writer has put into creating this book.

Essentially, this book is a well-written and crafted system for how to cope with your life after retirement, redundancy, or a change in circumstance, using the 4 autonomies to get your life in balance, keep it that way, and get a second bite of the cherry of life!

What is good about this book is it also covers how to deal with life when you have less money, in a productive and positive way, using Enlightened Thrift. So you have that feel good factor in your life, whatever the circumstances.

The use of quotes and references throughout the book adds to its helpfulness and I particularly enjoyed reading the play on Stephen Covey’s words “Seven Insidious Excuses Forcibly Rejected By Highly Effective people”.

If you are into NLP, A Coach, Entrepreneur, or New Lifer, this book is for you!

I would have given this book 5 Stars because I admire the Author’s work and have respect for him because of it. However, I am not the intended target audience, I am under 40 and did not like the remarks made about young people throughout the first half of the book. I felt they are stereotyped and as not knowing what they want and that they aren’t as successful in business as older people are. The Author managed to redeem himself in the latter half of the book, where he reveals having a young mindset is key to living a long and happy life, and that in his 70s, he adopts a young mindset and is still learning and looking forward to new adventures, while being a second biter of Generation Cherry!

Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy Book Pre-Launch Excitement!

The moment has finally arrived when I am going to be a published Author very soon. I am so excited! I just launched a new Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy Book – Author Sandra Bellamy Facebook page. It would be amazing if you could Like it as I haven’t secured the page name yet – I need at least 25 Likes to get the name, sometimes it’s more, and I want to put the page name in my book, so the race is on. I believe this book is life changing for me and I hope it will be for a ton of others too. Here is the Facebook link www.facebook.com/pages/Break-Through-The-Barriers-Of-Redundancy-Book-Author-Sandra-Bellamy Although my book is aimed at redundant workers, because it takes a holistic view of redundancy and getting back into work, it really does tackle a lot of well-being, confidence building and self-love issues, before dealing with the practicalities of job-hunting.

I have to check all of my hyperlinks work and then convert the manuscript to HTML for Kindle. Then -oooohhhhhh!!! It will be published Author time!!! So in these next few days/week – I should be able to proudly say that Sandra Bellamy is a published Author of Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy To Get Back Into Work: – An A-Z ‘How to’ guide.

For those of you who don’t like to watch videos or who can’t for some reason, here is a translation of my Quirky Books TV Video excitement:

Hi, it’s Sandra from http://www.quirkybooks.wordpress.com. I am going to be a published Author soon and I cannot wait! I spent four nights trying to reformat my book for Kindle and had no joy, and I think I have finally cracked it with the Table Of Content hyperlinks .. and I am so excited because I am just day, hours, away from being a published Author and it’s my dream. After two and a half years of making this book – Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy To Get Back In To Work – An A-Z How To Guide, I shall be finally there. Wow! It’s going to be incredible. I cannot wait! I am just so excited! It’s going to change my life, it’s going to help a ton of people and I just love it! I love helping people. I love writing. Oh my gosh to just be writing all the time again, was amazing. I took some time out of my day job – holiday – to do my writing of my book and I was spending ten hour shifts doing my writing and editing and amending, and it’s really hard work, really really hard work, but it’s so beautiful, I felt so at peace and at one with life and it’s absolutely fantastic! I have just been doing Facebook training with someone for their business, because I do Facebook and Twitter and Blogging training for business and that’s all great too, so you may see some books in the future, or a book about one or more of those subjects. More Quirky Books on the way. This Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy book is incredible, it’s a complete A-Z guide for getting back into work and it takes a holistic view of redundancy. It’s all about going back to your inner being to the roots of who you are and what you were born to do before all the noise got in the way, the kids, the mortgage, marriage. Or just when life take it’s ups and downs and doesn’t quite go to plan, how you would want it too. But it’s amazing. It’s a really good book, even though I’ve written it and I say so myself and I look at it and think – ‘Did I really write that?’ But yeah I’m really proud of it. I love it and I hope you’ll love it too. So Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy book will be out soon and I am so excited. Thank you for being on this journey with me. I have a ton of Bloggers, Facebookers and Tweeters, who have followed my journey for quite some time now on getting this thing published. Love to you all X. I really appreciate it. Until next time, Embrace Your Quirky and each others. Bye.

Keep embracing your quirky and believing that your dreams can come true.

Thanks for all of your love and support during my journey into print – Well into a Kindle at the very least!

Write soon

Launch of Quirky Academy UK to Beat Your Redundancy Blues

Quirky Academy UK

Quirky Academy UK Website

I just launched Quirky Academy UK – It will focus more on my products in comparison to Quirky Academy .com, that focuses more on my courses, classes, workshops and services – Starting with my Break Through the barriers of redundancy book.

I had a great time in London. Nick Vujicic was fantastic, and I got my photo taken with author Andrew Matthews, who signed all 3 of the books I bought from him. I told him I like to write and he listened to me about what my Break through the barriers of redundancy was about, and said I was well placed to write the book, having been made redundant twice myself. This is great motivation.

I went straight back into work and I am chocca at the mo. Photos and video/s to follow. It’s almost 4.30am and I have to get up for my day job in just over 3 hours, and I haven’t been to sleep yet.

Stay quirky and write soon
